Avacta (AVCT) is a pre-clinical biotechnology company and the proprietary owner of Affimer technology. Affimers represent a radical alternative to the established antibody technology, which continues to dominate the drug industry, despite its limitations. The significant technical and commercial benefits of Affimers are being recognised through increased corporate interest, on-going evaluations, and deal flow. AVCT recently strengthened its board with the appointment of Eliot Forster, ex-Immunocore CEO, as non-executive Chairman. This move provides greater expertise in maximising the potential of the Affimers as a therapeutic platform.
